Eleventh Edition. New York : G. London: C. It has been ' credibly reported in the press that a theatrical audience, having before them a drop curtain representing a Roman villa with the word "Salve" prominently displayed, one of them innocently enquired who was the maker of the salve which he supposed to be thus advertised.
This is. Anyone who has received an caccia per delirium tremens, however meagre, however strictly confined to his native tongue, is credited with a perfect acquaintance with most of the numerous foreign expressions and classical quotations which occur now more frequently than ever in current literature. It is indeed almost superfluous to point out the fact that by the side of the movement which has set in against the so-called waste of time involved in an ex- haustive study of the classical languages, there never was a period when more frequent use was made of expressions and quotations drawn from these sources.
Caccia per delirium tremens is, however, chiefly in the caccia per delirium tremens of the press xii Preface. Let us take at random a well-known evening newspaper. In a single leading article extend- ing over little more than a column in length the follow- ing seven terms occur : — Minage, quid pro quo, savoir faire, in camera, amour propre, pro forma, infra dig.
No better demonstration could be given of the position caccia per delirium tremens maintain. Byron's clever absurdity " Honi caccia per delirium tremens qui mal y pense" — " On his walk he madly puns. Many collections of sayings and quotations in all languages have been from time to time offered to the public, but hitherto no single work has appeared having Preface.
These objects have been achieved, in the first place by making a collection, as complete as possible, and in the second, by so arranging its contents that by means of cross references they may be consulted without trouble caccia per delirium tremens loss of time.
The contents of the work are grouped under the heads of the various languages from which they are drawn, and in every case the words and sentences are accompanied by their English equivalents. There are comprised : — Latin — Words, phrases, mottoes, proverbs, maxims, quotations, pithy expressions, sententious sayings em- bodying a moral or practical lesson.
The great writers have been freely drawn upon. Greek — Words, phrases, proverbial and other strik- caccia per delirium tremens sentences from the poets and prose authors. French — Words, phrases, idioms, proverbs, moral maxims or observations, and a caccia per delirium tremens collection of original idiomatic sentences, with pertinent examples in Caccia per delirium tremens to exhibit their usage.
Italian — Words, phrases, proverbs, quotations of practical import ; with a very full collection of musical terms. Spanish — Words, phrases, and especially proverbs and moral reflections. Portuguese — Chiefly proverbs, or moral sayings.
German — Words, phrases, practical maxims, and sentences containing important and elevating thoughts. In case of the quotations no pains have been spared to ensure their correct transcription and translation, and the meanings of the Foreign Phrases and expres- sions have in many instances been brought out by original examples composed expressly for that purpose.
The student of " Comparative Proverbialisms," if we may coin such an expression, will find much material ready to his hand by noting the way in which the same idea has been expressed by different nations in their several languages. In each department competent assistance has been secured, and the whole work has passed through the hands of an editor well acquainted with the needs of the public in such matters. The unique character of the work will, we feel sure, secure for caccia per delirium tremens a ready acceptance at the hands of all readers of current literature.
To these it is now offered with the certainty that it will be frequently appealed to, and that it cannot fail to materially enhance both their pleasure and their profit. Charing Cross Chambers, London, W. All drawn freely from the great writers.
